              The animals in the farmyard decide that working for humans is doing them no favours, so under the leadership of Napoleon, the only Berkshire Boar on the farm, and the other pigs, they drive out the farmer and his cohorts and set about structuring theirown society. Based on a list... of supposedly animal-friendly rules such as 'four legs good, two legs bad' the animals work together to harvest their own food and run their own farm. However, little by little, the rules begin to mysteriously change and the pigs seem to gain power, making the animals question whether their new-found freedom is as liberating as they might have hoped.
